Father Christos retires after nearly 50 years of service at All Saints Belmore

·

Father Christos Triantafyllou is retiring after nearly 50 years of serving at the All Saints Greek Orthodox Parish and Community of Belmore in Sydney.

Archbishop Makarios of Australia accepted Father Christos’ request to retire from active duty.

Father Christos has been a source of support for many people at All Saints parish, officiating at countless baptisms, marriages, and funeral services.

His vision has resulted in key undertakings, such as the founding of nearby All Saints Grammar, leading the committee that established the school and Preparatory Learning Centre. He also helped to initiate an iconography project within the Church.

Father Christos was also awarded an Order of Australia (OAM) in 2020, for his hard work, dedication and service to the community of Belmore – particularly for his drive and commitment to establish the school.

The Greek Orthodox Parish and Community of Belmore and District “All Saints” Facebook page posted on behalf of parishioners on Monday, July 8, commending and thanking Father Christos and his wife, Presbytera Sevasti for everything they have done for the community.

“We wish them health and every blessing from above in their retirement and look forward to seeing them around the Parish,” the post read.
